Bespoke size – just ask!

All of our units can be made to suit you, the products shown are generally made from our core components so offer the best value but we recognise that there are occasions when a specific size is required. If you need something slightly wider or shorter we are happy to help. We recently put this Half Crate Flat Shelf Unit together for Just Eat which was considerably narrower than the standard unit but was in fact still made using standard components. All you have to do is ask, drop us a line or just put a note in the special instructions in the shopping basket.

We’ve been developing this product with one of our customers and it is available to everyone in our Retail Display section. The Large Retail Display Unit features deeper crates, a large base incorporating a very useful storage area and a counter top display unit on the top. It has a real presence in a retail display and can be used at trade shows too.

Yet another Bespoke Crate Shelving Solution

We’ve been working with the Wheat Bag Company for some time and we’re really pleased with this unique crate shelving unit that has been developed with Claire, she said: “Just a quick pic to show how I’m selling them with stock in. They all look fab.”

We are always happy to help with bespoke requests, this unit has enlarged storage space in the base, lip elements on the front of the crates and a counter top display unit on the top, all connected with our crate latches for maximum flexibility. The units get used at trade shows as well as in store and look brilliant.

Brand new – Wooden A Board Sign…

As ever here at Furniture Crates, we love working with our customers to create new solutions, as we know that what works for one business will almost certainly have some resonance with others. And this is a case in point, Bude Bikes asked us to develop a couple of items, an A board and leaflet holder, to help them build some brand awareness in the local area. James, the proprietor, said: “Both items are fantastic, we’ve had a great response and agreed several locations for A boards and the leaflet holder has pride of place in the local pub.”

Stunning Stand Solution…

Kate of Kensington appeared at a show at Chatsworth House recently and took our crate shelf display units to showcase their beautiful products. We were a bit concerned about the weight of the products being displayed as they are heat resistant ceramic tiles which are pretty heavy. There was also some concealed storage in the bases. Kate said: “Thanks for turning them around for us…they looked great!”

New Wooden Cafe Planter

We’ve just launched this one as a standard product which you can see in the Catering section of our web site, it’s a large branded mobile planter which has been created as a bespoke solution a couple of times now but it is such a stunning solution we have got to add it to our range. The guys at Imperial Garden were really pleased with it and said: “Thank you for the planters, they look so great on the bar and stand out perfectly from the main road. Thank you for all your support in getting these to us for Science festival and the time and effort put in from your team.”
